"steter tropfen" (constant dripping) ist the name of a track on the first julius lagerferld ep for interdisco. and indeed, his music is wearing away the stone by a constant dripping forward, making you fidget. says julius lagerfeld about his ep: "it's a study in slowness. an attempt to create an inversely proportional correlation between speed and power. it was created by exclusively using hardware synthesizers to set a counterpoint to the prevailing approaches of laptop and software."
born with a lack of fashion sense, nearly transparent as a person, and perpetually about to disappear, a quote is the only connection between julius lagerfeld and karl otto the great: "i wish i was invisible."
to make his oscillations, julius lagerfeld prefers machines with a tactile quality over laptops. in his studio he needs buttons, switches, potis, loose connections and analogue instability.
living in basel and berlin, having moved 7 times in 5 years while struggling in bureaucratic warfare with the authorities on both the german and swiss frontiers, he finally found time to finish the konterkonzept ep.

Not too fast, not too slow, a tad repetitive during some sequences (Then again, it is minimal techno)
Konterkonzept and Magnetspur are probably my favorite of the four. Overall, it's not something I'd listen to on a regular basis, however, it is worth a listen. Four *'s it is then. Check it out peeps.

Music with an Evil Grin
This is music with an evil grin. The Joker’s henchmen would dance to this. Great stuff. Note that the stream is playing slower than the mp3 downloads, so preview from those instead.
